Gillespie Short Info

Gillespie is an underground rock'n'roll band of Kosovo established in 2005, known to be an influential band for many of the current bands in Kosovo. When performing live it usually ends up experimenting noisy psychedelic fusion. After the establishment, in two months time, the band members prepared the entire album material. Due to scarce finances, it took the band a year to launch its first album, which in fact was a live demo “Nje dite e zakonshme” (An ordinary day) consisting of 10 original songs, written by the band members. The band has also developed and launched two video clips, and one was given the price for the best post-production in 2006 by the Video Fest in Kosovo and was nominated for the best video price in few other local and international competitions. The song "E Di!" was in the top charts in Kosovo for six months in a row while the single "Luledielli" was nominated for the best indie song in a few international charts. The band has also published an EP (Femme Fatale) consisting of one single and three unplugged recordings done in a radio station in Kosovo. The "Femme Fatale" single was also nominated for the best alternative song in the Top Fest festival in Albania. The albums where always distributed to the audience free of charge, based on requests from individuals. The band has also played in different countries in the region (Macedonia, Albania and Montenegro) and Kosovo. The band was invited by the MTV producers to play as a warm up band for the Red Hot Chili Peppers in Indjia, Serbia in the Green Festival, however, due to traveling and documents restrictions this could not be achieved. The band is known for advocating for the human right to live in a clean and a healthy environment.

The band had a two-year break between 2008-2010, and published its second album "Numroj N'Numratore!" (I count on an abacus!) consisted of 8 songs in 2010. Since then Gillespie was touring and playing gigs in and outside the country.

The band has gone through minor line-up changes throughout the year.
